The same frustrations set in after we returned from getting the DVD orders away and some banking with the purchase of new investments to replace those recently cashed in, it was a nightmare mainly down to the Nat West bank who had the clever idea of introducing a security check which required them sending a code by text to a number I hadn't given them to a house which has no mobile signal, after 90 minutes they suggested they send me a TEXT!!!!! with the code again, after another 30 mins they said they would send it visa the land line, after 10 mins I gave up phoned the company I was buying from who then said they could take my card details over the phone.
That was only the start, there were two transaction which required transfers in person via the bank, went to Nat West in Knutsford after 20 mins answering random questions the screen went blank and they lost the plot, another 45 mins later at home they rang to say it had never left my account they would have to do it all, again tomorrow, first time it had happened to her in 23 years in the Nat West, why me???
I've got accomodation booked for two nights in Famagusta in Northern Cyprus, I've got three days in the north gricing to see what transport gems I can find. I'll cross in the west of the region and make my way to Famagusta for tea time then next day do local area trucks around docks and buses then last day in North Kyrenia area perhaps and back to west to cross perhaps back through Troodos to Limassol or back to Nicosia.
